A May Book Club

Kath's Bookshelf, Uncategorized

What better time to host a May book club than a few days before July? Oops. No surprises here but I’m still behind schedule; a good few chapters behind where I should be. But everyone loves an underKat so I’m going to keep going. Against all odds. So here’s a little round up of everything […]

An April Book Club

Kath's Bookshelf, Uncategorized

Although a few days late… Better late than never?! I thought it was about time to fess up to a month of very little reading. I have an excuse at the ready though. April started off with an absolutely brilliant read. (More on that in a paragraph’s time.) After just a few days into April, […]

A March Book Club

Kath's Bookshelf, Uncategorized

If I thought the first two months of 2019 were good reading months, then March was pretty fab. So I am still blabbing on about reading 52 books this year and while, shock, I’m still behind, I’m feeling okay about it. Especially since I’ve been reading books I’ve adored. So if you want to check […]

Dear Dublin | Day Two

Kathventures, Uncategorized

Dear Dublin, After a glorious day one that not only lived up to my expectations, but dare I say it, exceeded them, we woke up ready to see a whole new side of Dublin. After our first trip to Dublin, I realised our favourite city had even more to offer than we already had the […]

Brunch for Your Valentine


Kath's Kitchen

(This post is pretty fraudulent as I actually made my boyfriend this very brunch on MY birthday, BUT…) What is better than avo on toast? Avo on toast with bacon. If you feel like treating your partner, your friend or your family on Valentine’s tomorrow, I’ve got the simplest recipe to patronisingly tell you “how […]

How to Revisit a City


Kathventures

Next week I am heading back to my favourite place in the world… Dublin! My boyfriend and I decided to book a last minute, birthday-themed trip to Dublin since we’d both booked a few days off of work. I’ve been waiting to head back for over two years; ever since we stepped off of the […]

A January Book Club


Kath's Bookshelf

After setting myself the challenge to read 52 books this year (despite failing this very challenge last year), I thought I’d, once a month (normally at the end of the month but my blog went kaput for a while there), write up a round up of all of the books I’ve finished. In January I […]

How to Meal Prep & Keep up with it


Kath's Kitchen

Only half a year ago I begun working a Monday to Friday, Dolly Parton 9-5 (my actualy 08:30 to 17:30 hours don’t make such an epic tune). I hung up my waitress’s apron as well as the daily pasta and pizza. As much as I miss just this, I was glad for the change of […]

A Saturday Sausage Casserole


Kath's Kitchen

I spent this morning whipping together three lots of different meals so I don’t need to worry about work lunches for the next week. Or, by the look of my freezer, the next month. One meal I made four portions of was a sausage casserole; it took just over thirty minutes and I tested out […]

Sticking to your Goals in 2019


Unkategorised

While a lot of us make new goals to soften our January 1st hungover, there’s only a real emphasis for us to stick to them in January, rather than for the next eleven months too. Today I headed out with the boyfriend for a Sunday morning walk. One of the three small changes I made […]

How to get Back into Blogging


Unkategorised

When I woke up to the first day of 2019 I knew, alongside my resolutions, I wanted to start populating my blog with my nonsense thoughts again. *Pictures looking like Hilary Duff in The Perfect Man as she re-caps her day with the help of her keyboard.* When I fall out of blogging, much like […]

Why You Should Buy Books from a Charity Shop


Kath's Bookshelf

As much as I’m the kind of reader who aims to finish a book with it looking as close to bookshop-shelf worthy as possible, I totally get why people like books to look as “loved” as possible. (Although I will NEVER understand why people bend their covers back *shudders*.) I love a dip into a […]

Sunday the Sixth


Kathventures

Sunday the sixth of January allowed me a sleep in. When I pulled aside my duvet, shortly followed by my curtain, a sunny morning beckoned me beyond my window. So I showered, pulled on my new favourite jumper and painted my eyes sparkly. I sat my camera on my shoulder and tied up my new […]

Three Small Changes


Kathventures

As a lover of romance fiction (specifically Nicholas Sparks’s, of course), I definitely don’t mind the New Year romanticising some of us bathe in once we’ve said cheers and tidied away our Christmas presents. As a to-do list writer, I like having goals to work towards. For this reason, I am a New Year’s resolutioner […]
